Neeraj Chopra and several Indian athletes come in support of protesting Indian wrestlers

Top Indian wrestlers like Vinesh Phogat, Bajrang Punia, Sakshi Malik etc have taken to the streets again demanding justice over sexual harassment allegation put on WFI President and ruling BJP MP Brij Bhushan Singh. This was the 2nd protest by the Indian wrestlers as they earlier did another protest at Jantar Mantar in the country’s capital in January but was assured by sports minister Anurag Thakur of justice that made them to take back their protest.

However, things didn’t turn out the way wrestlers wanted it to be so they again had to call a protest where they await the action by the government. The wrestlers are sleeping on the streets demanding justice and are urging the authorities to file a FIR against Brij Bhushan who is a sitting Indian MP of BJP from Kaiserganj in Uttar Pradesh.

Several Indian athletes supported the protests by the wrestlers after Vinesh Phogat questioned the Indian cricketers of not speaking a word about their protest.

“The entire country worships cricket but not even a single cricketer has spoken up. We aren’t saying that you speak in our favour, but at least put up a neutral message and say there should be justice for whichever party. This is what pains me… Be it cricketers, badminton players, athletics, boxing…”

“It’s not like we don’t have big athletes in our country. There are cricketers… During the Black Lives Matter movement in the US, they showed their support. Don’t we deserve even that much,” she asked.
